Notes sourced from Punters Corner Vineyard.
1998 was an outstanding year in Coonawarra producing a very small crop of highly concentrated fruit. Named after the racehorse 'Spartacus' owned by Punters Corner directors David Muir and Robert Hance, this reserve wine represents the best small parcel of Shiraz produced from Punters Corner Vineyards.The wine was matured in American and Russian barriques for 20 months. Dense red in colour with an incredibly intense complex nose of lifted smoky vanillin oak and ripe red berry fruits with hints of spice and pepper combining to produce a Christmas fruit cake like aroma, with the Russian oak contributing finesse and balance. Dense sweet ripe fruit and ripe tannins follow on the palate with a long sweet fruit finish. This wine shows the richness and complexity of Coonawarra Shiraz when it is truly exceptional. 14% alcohol volume.
The 1999 vintage of this wine won the Jimmy Watson Trophy.
